Osprey with fish

By jbsaladino
I was watching this osprey when it dove into Myakka Lake and grabbed a fish. The photo was taken as the bird experienced great difficulty in attaining altitude when it took off due to the weight of its prey. It did however manage to barely clear the treetops as it headed toward it nest.
